healing time for bone removal?

I broke my fifth metatarsal at the base. after 5 months of wearing a boot the fragment moved 90 percent. the doctor had to do surgery. At first he wanted to put a screw in. However the fragment broke when screw was inserted.The dr. finally took out the fragment and stitched me up. Now 2 weeks later my foot still hurts when i spend time on my feet.. how long will it take to heal? is it still broken? It feels like the week after I first broke my bone!

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
